The Xbox One is going to kick ass! It will feature a hexacore CPU, like any midrange gaming desktop by Dell. Also 8 GB of RAM, of which 3 GB will be dedicated to the operating system so you can watch TV, Skype, or play a Flash game while you play a game. That is important because it will leave 5 GB of RAM for games. Did I mention you can watch TV on it yet? This is a really cool feature, it's similar to how you can receive DVB-T / Digitenne on a PlayStation 3, or watch TV on the set-top box you already got with your cable subscription. Speaking of set-top boxes, it kinda looks like one: Kinect will also be important. All games are required to use it. Which will work out great if you're the target audience (teenager or college student), and placed your Xbox One in a 14m² bedroom or dorm room. You will always be connected to cool stuff. This will require you to login to Xbox Live every 24 hours, or you can't play any games (including single-player). Games will load faster too! No more screwing around with blu-ray discs. You are required to install them on the proprietary 500 GB hard drive that you can't replace. Thanks a lot Ballmer. This is going to be awesome. TLR: You can buy Microsoft's latest media centre in November. Oh, apparently you can also play games on it.
